Dahon sales show rapid growth

Latest news from Dahon is that their worldwide sales have grown substantailly yet again. Here in the UK there are certainly a great many more Dahons around than there used to be, but with Brompton still unable to meet demand, and long waiting lists, the growth of Dahon seems to confirm the growth of the whole folder market, rather than sales being gained at the expense of competitors.
Dahon's press release states:
"Dahon, the world leader in portable bicycles, announced record sales for the first half of 2007. Unit volumes of bicycles sold grew by 27 percent to 180,000 units, and revenues increased by 36 percent compared to the year earlier period. Both the unit volume and revenue numbers represent all time highs for Dahon."
